The Museum for Architectural Drawing is built for placing and exposing the collections of Sergei Tchoban`s Foundation founded in 2009 to promote the art of architectural graphics. The striking construction is extended from a fire-wall and latches onto a row of typical old Berlin houses. The Museum for Architectural Drawing is a four-storey solid corpus with a glass floor stacked on top. The profile of the four floors is reminiscent of casually piled up blocks. The building’s silhouette is created by a regression and progression of facade elements, and demonstrates a freedom of form that relates to the conventions of the neighbouring historic Berlin buildings and yet is unorthodox and minimalist in its gesture.

The Museum for Architectural Drawing is an exceptional example of contemporary architecture in its construction, design and choice of materials. The powerful expression of its formal language cannot be overlooked though it still responds sensitively to its surroundings. The coloured concrete and glass facades of the building are rich in contrast and layers. Its closed surface is detailed with strong magnified fragments of architectonic sketches in relief form. The museum has a floor area of approximately 490 square metres, and contains two receptions areas, two exhibition rooms and the museum depository.
